2018 could end up being a turning point for the New York Giants and send them on an upward trajectory in the NFC East standings. But for that to happen, they’ll have to cut a little closer to the bone than they did this season when they turned over the better part of 70% of their roster.
Naturally, they’ll turn over another 30% or more this spring and summer. So with that in mind, here are some of the people the fans want gone before the new league year begins in March.
He’s not just the fan’s choice, he’s everyone’s choice to be the first to go. The Giants signed Riley to a one-year, $630K deal last March and his role was to that of a primary backup and special teams player. He ended up starting all 16 games this season at free safety.
The Giants made a grave error by trusting Riley, who took bad angles on ball-carriers, missed coverages, and eventually tackles, that sealed his fate with the team. He was benched in the season finale after allowing a Cowboys’ player to score unchallenged.
Riley is will be a free agent in March and the Giants will simply not re-sign him.
